Malawi aims to reduce poverty through sustained economic growth and infrastructure development as outlined in the Second Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MGDS II) 2012-2016. The expected result is to transform the country from being a predominately importing and consuming economy to a predominately manufacturing and exporting economy.
